COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new Ohio database of companies in the solar-power industry is part of a larger effort to help those businesses attract customers and work together.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the nearly 300 companies shown on the online map includes component manufacturers and installers. They vary in size from one-person firms to larger operations like DuPont's solar-components plant in Circleville.
The Ohio Development Service Agency and Ohio University created the map. The head of energy and environmental programs at the university's Voinovich School of Leadership says the project takes a broader view at the industry serving a growing market.
Owner Kevin Eigel of the solar-power installer Ecohouse in central Ohio says he's happy to be part of such databases because they help customers find him.
